The A28 between Zwolle and Meppel was closed off for hours in the night from Saturday to Sunday after a police chase. The driver of the car that was being chased jumped out of the car and still fled.

Rijkswaterstaat announces that the police investigation was completed on Sunday around 7 a.m. and that the road was cleared. The police were still unable to say anything at 8:00 am about the progress of the investigation and the search for the driver.

The man jumped out of his black Audi at the start of the night, after a long chase had been trapped by agents at the Nieuwleusen exit.

According to De Stentor , the man managed to escape by running across the other lane, between traffic. A major search with a police helicopter would have yielded nothing.

The Explosives Clearance Service Defense (EOD) is said to have investigated the car. It is unclear why the police initially chased the man.

In a chase on the # A28, the driver jumped out of the car and fled. The car is still on the highway and we are now investigating it. That is why the A28 is closed between the #Ommen and #Nieuwleusen exits. ^ MB
